movement. a year later, a couple in minnesota was denied a marriage license because state law limited marriage to persons of the opposite sex. their case made to the u.s. supreme court back in 1972. it was dismissed without so much as a written opinion. the court ruled that same sex couples have no constitutional rights married and that the legal challenge itself failed to raise a substantial federal question at all. but the struggle continued. it would be another 14 years before the supreme court would issue a major ruling on civil rights for gay americans in bour versus hard wig. in the summer of 1982, michael baurs was arrested and charged by atlanta police by committing a private act with another adult man in his own bedroom. his case made it to the high court in 1986 where georgia's law criminalizing adult gay male couples for engaging in private consensual sexual acts was upheld. it was not until 203 that that decision was overruled when the court recognized the constitutional right to privacy for lesbian and gay individuals. the struggle still continues. ten years after bowers,
of what happened nobody has any idea what motivated this murder. law enforcement said they're not jumping to conclusions whether his job or his job as second in command of state prisons in missouri before he came to colorado, whether any of those job titles had anything to do with his murder last night. they said they're keeping an open mind as to the possibility that what he does for a living had nothing to do with why he was killed. but in response to the killing, at what is already a heightened time of political tension in the state, colorado officials have responded by increasing security for other top government officials in the state. they have also increased security at the governor's mansion. this is happening in colorado at an already heightened time. the colorado legislature has been debating and passing gun reform legislation and that debate has been unusually contentious. they have pledged on the floor of the senate that they will disobey them. they will disobey the state's new laws. democratic lawmakers have received threats for their support of gun reform. criminal charges h

from everything to mechanics to campaign finance laws. >> greta: one of the questions, the perception according to you, is that the republican party-- >> according to polling. >> greta: a party of rich-- yeah, polling. party of rich, narrow, stuffy, out of touch people and you want to reach the minority, female and young. >> greta: how do you convince you have anything for them if you're part of the rich, stuffy-- >> and obviously that's perception. part of is if you're not showing up in the community, the perception and narrative becomes reality. when we announced yesterday and today is that the national party -- in 2013, mind you, after a presidential election, that's never been done, is just going to spend just on the political oranges itself 10 million dollars which will include hundreds, a few people down the hallway, but hundreds of people in communities across the country advocating for our party in asian, hispanic, african-american communities making their presence known, going to community events, swearing in ceremonies, everything. >> greta: one of the complaints i've had al
. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
ad law that will allow for the restructuring of their banks. this essentially means their sickest and largest banks will be down sized and made more healthy. this was a key demand by the european partners in order to secure a 10 billion euro bailout for the country. when the law is passed depositors who hold less than about $130,000 they will be fully protected. those who are above 100,000 euros are likely to face loss. they may get equity in a new bank, we'll have to wait and see. but bottom line this is what we needed to see by monday in order for the bank to be able to reopen on tuesday with the key backing of the european central bank. back to you. >>> many thank to cnbc michelle caruso-cabrera. let's bring in our contributor, andy bush, author and publisher of the "bush update" and lecamp. >> i would caution optimism. there's going to be a bank run as soon as these banks open up on tuesday. the corporate money will pull out as fast as they can. we're not sure how much will destabilize what's left of the cypriot banking system. this isn't like an earthquake but this will help
. and the third anniversary of the signing of obamacare in law and the senate overwhelmingly to repeal the tax on medical devices and higher insurance premiums next year. and "varney & company" says this law looks like it's unravelling. is that wishful thinking? in our next hour, one of the foremost authorities and critics of obamacare will answer that question, are we stuck with it? i think you're going to like her answer to this one coming up later. now, cyprus, they have seized private wealth, and principal, destroyed cyprus as a tax haven. and overseas tax haven, that's a contentious issue. i don't think this is going to strengthen president obama's hand going after the money marketed overseas whether it's rich people or corporations? >> and he signed the foreign asset tax compliance act forcing banks in other countries to reveal who are-- who are the americans that have money and how much and that was obviously controversial. americans and europeans and other places not happy about it, but this gives him a chance to say, listen, this is-- these tax havens, they're not even safe for you, a
congress, think they can write any law, regulate behavior, and change any law. stuart: we talked about the situation, and, by the way, when the market opened this morning, the dow dropped 105 points, come back a lot, now down 36. maybe, charles, liz, maybe the market thinks that the cypress story is overblown, will not affect it, maybe not affect spain or italy artery. >> maybe not, you know, but certainly for people who have been really concerned with what's going on, with a government that buys 1.2 billion bullets, hires 16,000 new irs agents, a government that's spent a trillion more than they earn than brought in, it doesn't help. the people in this country who are afraid of losing their rights and liberty, it's scary. stuart: i want debt center stage, and it's not. >> it's not. it should be. it might be likely limited, but it shows there's nothing above political meddling. what used to be taboo is your deposits are safe from taxation. stuart: the time is up, butdagen, connell it's yours. connell: thank you, sir. dagen: if you bail out those depositors, why shouldn't they have to p

i see this issue. first off, starbucks is in compliance with the law that he is proposing. and secondarily, our business is really based on customization. and that customization is one of the reasons why we've been successful because people are able to customize their own beverage. i think americans and adults are old enough and mature enough to make their own decisions with regard to the customerization. we will comply with the law one way or the other. but the way the law was proposed, it did not cover what we do. most of our drinks are with milk, not with sugar. >> with milk, not with sugar. all right, let me ask you about that. there was a study, 180,000 obesity deaths in america, i'm sorry, worldwide, 22,000 in the united states can be linked to sugary drinks. that is a stunning number. so we looked at starbucks and i have to admit, there are drinks at starbucks i love but it means foregoing a meal. 57 570 calories, 80 grams of sugar. so coke is getting slaughtered. but don't you feel that you kind of have a problem, too? >> that particular beverage that you just talk
. >> chris: let's talk about the personal sphere, because, you would like to relax some of the laws for people who possess and are smoking marijuana and you also in the senate have voted against, in fact, to ban -- rather, against a ban on synthetic recreational drugs. why are you more lenient on drug laws, sir? >> the main thing i've said is not to legalize them but not to incarcerate people for extended periods of time. i'm working with senator leahy with a bill on mandatory minimums. there are people in jail for 37, 50, 45 years, for nonviolent crimes. and that is a huge mistake. our preference are full of nonviolent criminals. and i don't want to encourage people to do it. i think even marijuana is bad to do and takes away your incentive to work and show up and do the things you should be doing. i don't think it is a good idea. i don't want to promote that but i don't want to put people in jail and make the mistake. a lot of young people do this and later on in their 20s, grow up and quit doing things like this and i don't want to ruin their lives. the last two presidents could
oppose the ban and background checks saying they will punish only law abiding gun owners. new york state is changing its new assault weapons ban before it even takes effect. that law bans magazines that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. the problem is seven round magazines don't exist. starting next month you will still be able to buy 10 round magazines in new york state. it will be illegal to load more than seven rounds at a time. no word on how they will enforce that hours ago in the ancient and holy stipulate of jerusalem president obama stood before the israeli people and made a strong and direct peace. he called for two state solution. told the israelis to put themselves in the palestinians who want to land a call of their own. he says if the israelis want peace they must not only demand of their politicians but work towards it themselves. the president spoke after a trip to the west bank and he told the crowd in jerusalem he was departing from prepared speech to talk about young palestinians he had met there. >> talking to them, they weren't that different from my daughter
that a new law that bars felons from owning guns violates that state's constitution. residents passing an amendment in november of last year, that challenged law now heads to the supreme court. now for a segment that we like to call what the hill? and you will understand why in just a second it was supposed to be money for the future but 15 years later it's just money down the drain. $24 million in federal funding was spent on a four building complex named after democratic congressman james clyburn. the problem just one building has been built and another 80 million is needed to finish it. that plan to end mail delivery on saturdays just return to served sender. congress has just passed legislation that requires saturday delivery. the postal service planned to stop saturday service lower cost after it lost $16 billion last year. the fbi is trying to figure out how a guy posing as a pilot got past several security checkpoints. and then into the cockpit of a u.s. airways jet in philadelphia. how about that? well, chris o'connell from our fox affiliate in philly has our story. >> police s
to bring the goodies to your constituency. unless there's a law or change the election process, that's going to continue add infini infinitem, forever. it's unfortunate, it's sad. unless there's a-- unless we outlaw pork, i don't see anything changing. >> brenda: we have ourselves to blame at the bottom. but jonas, let's talk about all the fork projects. this has been going on forever and ever and both parties love to feast on pork. in fact, you can't cut it out all at once, right? >> i imagine if they cut it out completely there would be no passing of any bills because it doesn't add up to a whole lot, but boils down to, it's not going to balance the budget. and second, it's the bribe use today get the senators in congress to vote for these bigger, more important bills which would never get passed if you couldn't-- you're getting a bridge and you're getting this and you're getting a university. and these pork projects as terrible as they are is the carrot to pass. and as far as they don't get bigger legislation, the voters turn on them when they get major cuts to spending. pork is n

[laughter] [applause] by the way if you are worried about the welfare state that is an argument to get rid oft rather than keep people out. [applause] john: if you are not legal you are not eligible. summer automatically like kids in school and hospital emergencies but food stamps stamps, medicaid they are not eligible. >> one thing to say is federation for american immigration reform we are bipartisan 501(c)(3) we're not anti-immigrant just somebody on a diet is anti-food is regulation. john: but they pay taxes and don't collect welfare. >> the cost of illegal immigration last year was $113 billion in spee areas of
michael bloomberg announced he was moving forward with a law to forbid stores from publicly displaying cigarettes and other tobacco products because quote, such displays suggest that smoking is a normal activity and invite young people to experiment with tobacco. smoking is the number one cause of preventible death in the united states but is hiding merchandise the best way to combat the problem or is there another way the states are avoiding? according to the cdc, between 1998 and 2010, states in this country collected nearly $244 billion in cigarette taxes and settlement money from the case against big tobacco. yes, that is nearly one quarter of a trillion dollars. this year alone, the states will get nearly $26 billion. so that money is supposed to go to ending smoking, funding tobacco prevention programs, but it doesn't. of the $26 billion this year, about 1.8% is actually going to go towards prevention. the states use the rest for, well, a whole lot of other stuff. they obviously need the cash desperately. new york city will receive $625 million this year and has set aside $7.9 mi

at this saying, this time it's about the russian oligard. but if you don't follow some rule of law on these -- >> one more thing, barclay's, one of the few houses putting out research over the weekend put out this bar chart to show the size of the relative costs of banks bailing out the banking system based on gdp. look at cyprus. it is so outside. ireland comes next and greece. spain, italy. they don't even come close. there's 600 billion euros of senior debt in italy. >> three practical questions. first, there's a bank holiday today. there's a bank holiday technically tomorrow. >> probably. >> if you want to get your money out of cyprus, you can't. >> impossible. >> two, when there was a crisis in -- when we thought there was a true crisis going on in italy and spain, corporationes and some institutional investors put their money in, but retail did not for the most part. so what happens in cypress and what happens across the board? even in the u.s. whether we have -- it's called runs. >> why do you touch anybody under the insurance level, though? >> i agree. that's where the writ

people and middle class people that use cyprus because of the rule of law, common law, the double tax treaties we have. it's a mistake to think that it is a very special class, of very rich people. these russians have their lawyers, their accountants, many of them have their families living in cyprus. they have their friends. we have a relationship that can with stand a shock like this. >> bearing that in mind, are the banks going to open on tuesday morning? >> i cannot say that. i cannot say that. it's always a mistake to say something like this when you are not completely sure. there is a lot of work to be done. but they will open very soon. >> and how long do you intend to use the capital controls? >> that also i cannot answer. but, again, our objective to keep them as limited and as short as possible. >> and finally, you bypassed the democratic process of a parliamentary vote with this field. will you consider tendering your resignation when you get back to cyprus? >> no, no, we did not bypass the poll. we passed a number of laws two nights ago. we have kept party leaders ip forms
for passage in the tea party flavored house. wow, that is supposed be a news piece. the law undream line of what was supposed to be a tax piece. it restores my of the cruel automatic spending cuts. all is missing is a line like thank god for the democrats. then it was also considered a cheese head. it starts out fair and factual enough under the rhine plan, the government subsidizes it. the only famous unnamed critics who say all of this would mean ever shocking. he is heartless and soulless and probably the double in pinstripes. it is one thing when they say it was all but a sham. it is another thing for them to prove that it is an even bigger sham. they are darn near inbred watching politicians who continue to say that we don't have a spending problem. and one that is only trying slow down the growth of the spending. fair and balanced. try over and out. dick armey says that he is over the top of the house of representatives. i am not saying give republicans a pass. i am saying to treat them equally and with the same ferocity. and i do not. >> thing that is most frightening about what y
laws making their way through state legislatures to answer to this question, but that can take a long time. what do you recommend consumers to do right now? >> they have to basically check with their doctors, check whether hospitals and see if they can checkout. start raising the questions now. gerri: thank you for coming on. i appreciate your time, thank you. you are used to hearing the bad news about retirement especially if you invested throughout the financial crisis, but today in a new report from employee benefit research institute shows you've got company. 57% of u.s. workers surveyed reported having less than $25,000 in savings for retirement. that compares to 49% who said the same thing back in 2008. keep in mind we have just been through one of the most impressive stock rallies in memory. 66% of us are saving for retirement these days. also half of u.s. workers cannot come up with $2000 in a crisis. that means half of us couldn't cope with the short-term job loss or major home repair or even a car repair as that is concerned. we need to get back on track, take control of our
such restriction on the marketplace. it is no longer free market. businesses are finding ways to skirt the laws. they are making full-time employees part-time employees. it does not help the 15 million unemployed. dagen: when president obama said if you like your health insurance, you can keep it. people will be faced with that choice if they work for a small company and they decide to drop coverage. >> that is unfortunately not true, dagen. the fact is that prices should actually go down. insurance companies have a great incentive to actually reduce their rates. there will be more people paying. there will be a very few of us that are not insured. dagen: they cannot charge market rates for people with health conditions. they are limited to what they can charge older people. some people's premiums will go up. younger people, healthier people at small businesses. >> that should not be the case. young healthy people will have a good incentive to get into the market as opposed to paying a penalty. dagen: this is what the cbo said in the obama administration has said. if this does not come to pass,

is basically the states started passing abortion laws, and the supreme court swooped in and said it's all or nothing, and that debate rages 40 years later. i don't know the supreme court will find a constitutional right to marry for anyone because this is something that's traditionally left to the states. public opinion aside, this is not a popularity contest. this is not do we all know and love somebody who's gay? because we all do. >> the supreme court has already recognized there is a fundamental right to marry, it's repeatedly held that. and it held that most famously in the 1967 case, loving versus virginia, which is a case that said the states' decision about making interracial marriage illegal was not constitutional. so having states make these decisions on a fundamental right like marriage is not acceptable under the constitution. >> i would argue it's a little bit more complicated. the problem is this. people who are allowed to get married -- and this is actually the case that's going to be argued tomorrow. people who are allowed to get married, which is now nine states plus d.c.
of the planned parenthood legislation, it has to be said that this turns into law and not just politics. in the states where republicans are in power, they are doing stuff right now that they have never done before. as long as abortion has been legal in this country and constitutionally protected for the past 40 years. they have never been more radical than they are right now. we have reported before on this show about the radical turn taken in arkansas's legislature where lawmakers just passed an ban that was vetoed, that it was unconstitutional. but the arkansas legislature overrode the veto because they do not care that her definitely going to get sued over it, and that they will lose that lawsuit and they will waste a bunch of money in the process. much as they would like to, republicans cannot just ban abortion, thanks to row versus wade. arkansas does not stand alone because now republicans in north dakota have passed an even more extreme and obviously unconstitutional ban on abortion. theirs doesn't start at 12 weeks. theirs starts at 6 weeks, which is before many women even know
of years. john boehner said, it's the law of the land. he walked that back afterwards, but that is what he is thinking. this is a fight that will take place in policy documents and political documents like ryan budget but when it comes to funding -- voting on bills that will become law, obamacare -- >> this continuing resolution does not have funding for bom a bomb -- for obamacare. >> it won't. >> they will find a deal to fund it through other monies, they will not crimp it, obama will not sign thinking that will slow it down. >> we will track it, i have to jump, this is a big fed day, stocks generally liked what they heard from ben bernanke, i wonder if he was signaling a little let easy money, that is my take next up on kudlow. there's this island -- and it's got super-cute kangaroos. barrow island has got rare kangaroos. ♪ chevron has been developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's
be for the supreme court to strike down prop 8 and doma so this becomes settled law of the land and they do not have to deal with the schism inside their party and all the old guys who are culturally or religiously or for whatever reason resistant to marriage equality will no longer be holding office and will die off, i think is what josh says, and the republican party can move past this. >> well, it would take a brave republican in the meantime to move against the party on this with only 34% support in the republican party. and rand paul is not that brave republican. it's always fun to watch him torn between libertarianism and republicanism as he is on this thing, the libertarian view, of course, is that government should have nothing to do with religion in any way. they don't understand why the state would -- be issuing marriage licenses. but, you know, there he is. stuck defending the republican position. and -- but ari, going forward, if the supreme court doesn't help out the republican party this way, how long would it take for there to be some beginning of peeling off of republicans from the p
followed by a grand coalition with a narrow mandate, including to change the electoral law is the most likely venue. >> how pressing is the need to change electoral law so that if there are fresh elections held, there would be a clear outcome the next time? >> i think it's important. it's important because if they set up in a way in which they stable the larger parties, central right and central left, it will make the outcome of elections more likely to be stable for the next time around. and i think the incentives may be aligned in that respect to play against the pakistan movement. so we think that -- and also it's just needed a 51%. solo it's never easy, we think this time around incentives might be aligned for that change. >> okay. and still italy's market holding up reasonably well ahead of all of this. details on that hopefully out later on today. >>> ahead on the program, oecd's secretary calling for calm over cyprus. do you think the country will leave the eurozone? find outway told cnbc when we come back. impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and t

and that there is a full scale investigation of so many more people who clearly had so much to do with this. there is a law in ohio that can, you know, cause someone to be charged for failing to report a felony, and clearly, in this case, a rape is a felony. so i think we're going to see more coming out of this attorney general's investigation. >> the fact that you have now two other teenaged girls who have been arrested for making threats against this 16-year-old rape survivor is again, it's stunning. >> it's just, you know, it just leaves me speechless, anderson. again, i ask where are the parents, if your kids are following this court case and if you're watching this, has someone sat down to say in social media, there are consequences for your actions. taking these pictures, disseminating them, caused an additional charge for one of the defendants. making death threats, talking about a homicide on twitter is just plain stupid. in addition to being criminal conduct, which we heard the sheriff in this town say he's going to prosecute and take very seriously, so i hope that this is a wake-up call for the p
that a u.s.-led invasion that was not justified, not in self defense goes forward. international law matters. the u.n. is not irrelevant. >> citing international law in those days could make you a laughing stock on television, but janine garofalo hung in there, she was ridiculed mercilessly. the prowar world, including republicans and democrats tried to turn her into a lefty hollywood caricature. none of them have ever apologized, even though they now know that she was right and the president of the united states was wrong and his highly trained foreign policy team and war policy team was wrong. >> the problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons, but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> we all remember that howard dean was right about the invasion of iraq and michael moore was right. and when michael moore won an oscar in 2003, in his acceptance speech he spoke of a president, quote, sending us to war for fictitious reasons. and he was booed in hollywood by a large segment of the oscar audience in tha
of a principle, though. equality under the law. mr. priebus and the republican party appear to be prepared to throw equality under the law under the bus in order to pander to people who are bigoted. i don't think that'sa a recipe for success for the future. >> he's a guy that knows how to count votes and he's trying to explain to the rest of his party that the votes aren't going to be looking like they're not going go in their favor if they don't change some of this stuff. he's trying to move people forward and he's having quite a time of it. let me throw out a shocker for you. in utah, salt lake city went for barack obama. i don't know how many wake-up calls the party will have to get before they realize they'll need to make some changes. >> that's why i started working in campaigns out there and there are reasonable people in salt lake city, i shouldn't say that. there are a lot of reasonable people in salt lake city. thank you, ron reagan and thank you, errol lewis. >>> up next, chris christie meets the press. the third grade press. really. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>
to terrorism. the response to the embassy bombings in africa were treated as law enforcement issues, but 9/11 turned our responses into the global war on terror, and the congress is still debating the president's authorities in that arena, the drone debate. whether a particular cyber attack meets the threshold of being an act of war is likely to depend very much on the political and military situation at the time that that happens and not necessarily on any definition that you could put in place up front, sue. >> speaking of that, we know that treasury secretary jack lew is this china this week and a big part of his agenda is addressing these cyber attacks. you have news on the man that chinese group that reportedly has been sitting those u.s. sites recently, including some of the banks. >> yeah, that's right. i have been talking to the folks at mandian. it's the private american consulting firm that put out the ground breaking report in which they named the chinese army unit they suggested was responsible based in shanghai for attacks on american companies. they are telling me they, in fa
